FIFTEEN-year-old Laura Grazia from Knowle has a confession - she’s mad about food.
The budding young chef with a passion for cooking has started her own blog to share her talents with other like-minded people.
The Arden Academy pupil spends her time inventing and creating many of her own recipes, which she publishes on her website.
“I’ve loved cooking for as long as I can remember,” she told the Solihull News this week.
“I am from an Italian family so food and cooking has always been a big thing for us. I haven’t really had any lessons as such, I’ve just picked things up from my mum and school along the way.
“It was my sister’s idea to start a blog, mainly to keep my recipes in one place but I also want to share my recipes and ideas with others.”
Laura has recently reached the semi finals of two cooking competitions, the Rotary Young Chef and Springboard’s Future Chef.
Laura said she is keeping her options open in terms of her future career.
“I would like to write about cooking and food or maybe even combine photography and food,” she added.
